The One still comes out ahead of most potential Republican rivals in a new series of polled matchups, but The Donald is only two points behind him, losing 43-41 percent if the race were held today.
The polls, conducted by Newsweek and The Daily Beast, have President Obama tied with Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who is still deciding whether to run for president or keep his show on Fox News.
Obama is two points against Mitt Romney, who would lose 49-47 percent, and he swamps Sarah Palin by 51-40 percent.
None of the potential GOP challengers has announced yet, though Romney is widely held to be running. Trump is flirting with the idea and recently appeared before the annual CPAC Conference of conservatives, where several other potential candidates strutted their stuff.
